Rosie Bell Loves to model!
It has been snowing for 2 days.
I do not mind, I love the snow
and it does not stop us from getting out.
It is so beautiful and
sparkles like tiny diamonds.
Maximo Loves to Model, too.
See his smile!
I was playing with some
left over chunky variegated yarns,
and designed a fun Dog Collar.
And I want to share it
with you today.
I designed this collar for any size dog,
Cat, pet or even human!

See how easy that is.
It is super Easy to make and a fun
way to use of your left over yarns.
You could even use 2 strands
of WW(4) yarns
for a really interesting look.
I love a slip on decorative collar
for my pooches.
They love them too.
It is a way for added warmth,
they stay on and
there are no buttons,
Velcro or buttons to fuss with.
